The WMSC also discussed a number of changes to the 2020 Sporting Regulations, which is expected to include the addition of a number of reverse grid qualifying races, but these will only be signed off by a later electronic vote.

F1 has also confirmed that there will be two three-day tests prior to the start of the season, with both taking place at Barcelona.
